Starting Tuesday May 9th, we invite you to join the Bancroft Cruisers for Cruise Night in the Bancroft Canadian Tire parking lot.  Bring your car, truck, motorcycle and share in an evening of tire-kicking and good-natured banter focused on the vehicles we have, the ones we want and the ones that got away.  Tell a few lies! Laugh. Life is too short not to have a cool car. See "Events" tab for full schedule.

If you are in or around the Bancroft (Ontario) area and happen to be a dedicated gear head, car geek, or just have a passing interest in vintage and collector cars, then plan to attend the Bancroft Cruisers' Cruise Nights every second Tuesday evening at Canadian Tire (Mid-May to late September). 

In addition to regularly scheduled events, the Cruisers also hosts special events including the annual summer picnic at Millennium Park, the very popular greasy-finger corn roast, and the downtown Bancroft Show N' Shine when the main street of Bancroft becomes a massive parking lot with collector cars, vendors and live music.

The 2015 colour cruise was perfect weather for some open top touring and a trip to the ice cream stand in Apsley before hitting our final destination - the Joy Bible Camp in Bancroft where staff prepared a fabulous meal of roast beef, chicken breast, vegetables.... and... for dessert ... lava cakes spewing creamy hot chocolate. Another great event organized by Dave and Gail. Thank you!!!!

Lenora and Garry Sunstum were honoured at the annual Bancroft Cruisers BBQ in Millennium Park on Tuesday July 21, 2015. Garry and his wife, who are retiring as operators of Canadian Tire in Bancroft, have been sponsors of the Bancroft Cruisers and have been making the Canadian Tire parking lot available for Cruisers' events for the past twenty years. The celebratory cake featured a picture of Garry's 1970 Chevelle SS 454. Happy retirement!!!
